The round-up: what’s open this Ekka public holiday

Finally, after a couple of years of pandemic-related complications, the Ekka is going ahead. The showbags are packed, the rides are operational and the dagwood dogs are ready for our bellies. The traditional mid-week day off is also back for 2022, with Wednesday August 10 once again reserved for show-day shenanigans. If you’d rather spend our public holiday catching up with friends at a cafe or visiting the newest restaurants, that’s okay too! We’ve compiled a list of spots that are trading on the Ekka public holiday – all you’ll have to do is decide on where you’ll be feasting!
